An ok movie. The story was meh. I like Sean Penn as an actor and the other cast were solid.

Rated 4/10. While slightly better than I had anticipated, I still found the story convoluted.

I found the ending with Penn's character unbelievable.

Definitely not a great story.

Lots of action in this movie. If you like action movies, watch this one. Fighting, blood, shooting the whole deal!!!

Penn is definitely jacked up; whether he's on the juice ('roids) or not is speculation... And he's not a bad contender for this Liam Neeson-esque genre, but the writing was weak. As if he didn't have enough to deal with, they throw in debilitating 'brain plaque'?!? Ummm, okay... For what? Some really reach waaaay out there for creativity in their scripts these days...

Billed as an action thriller, it required me to look up both of those words -- I disagree with calling this movie either of those. A number of decent actors and locations that are interesting, and none of that made it good. Clumsy, dull, boring. No wonder it had no wait list and plenty of renewal opportunities...

Action packed movie. The gun fights are well sequenced.

Specoli grew up and got a gun.

Actually, not too bad.

Action packed mercenary assassin movie to add to the forest of them.

Steroids took a toll on 55 year old Sean penn he's been doing it for a long time according to his face.

A revisit to things most of us know or have seen in other movies. Bond, Bourne, or Mills- Pick one. OK story line with visits to Africa, Spain, and England. Liked the real footage stuff- watch it on a lazy rainy day.

TV newsman:For years, the United Nations and non-governmental organizations, NGOs, have been providing humanitarian relief in an increasingly unstable situation, often requiring the presence of private security contractors to ensure aid workers' safety. The conflict is fueled by the country's vast mineral wealth, with all sides suspected of deliberately prolonging the violence to plunder natural resources such as gold, diamonds, copper, coltan, and other high-value minerals to meet the growing demand of the Western world.

Agent Barnes: Need a light? Mind if I sit down? I think I might have one with you. You ever have one of those days when every law is Murphy's Law? Everything's going wrong and everyone wants to kill you for something. You know, my wife's been on me
for weeks now to finish this tree house in the garden for the kids, you know. One bloody tree and about 30 inches where I can get the ladder in before I run into my wife's garden.

Ending lines: ... the case raises new questions about the covert methods used by multinationals seeking to control natural resources in the developing world
regardless of the humanitarian consequences.
